Health Minister Terrence Deyalsingh has assured that T&T’s COVID-19 response will be well-funded.
At today’s health briefing, Mr Deyalsingh was asked if there was anything specific he had requested in the 2021 Budget, which will be read on Monday.
Mr Deyalsingh reminded that money spent so far on the national response was outside of the 2020 Budget, since the virus was not around when that package was presented.
He adds that not all of what was requested has been spent, and assured that whatever is needed will be financed.
Mr Deyalsingh also issued assurances regarding the current stock of COVID-19 testing kits.
He says there are thousands currently available, with rolling orders in place to have more brought in at regular intervals.
